It is an extraordinary concept,linking vampires with bullying.The main character is a witness to bullying and later becomes a victim himself. The author shows the frame of mind of the person who looks away and does nothing. The guilt, self loathing and anger. At the same time he is feeling almost gleeful about not being targeted.The second storyline features the creation of vampires. The obvious connection in this case is receiving the strength and power to not only subdue, but also being able to act upon those strong thoughts of revenge.I think the chapters leading up to going into the facility could do with some editing. It is drawn out and the event of doing nothing and being a victim are quite similar in structure and contain superfluous details.This is quite on par with a YA book, which is good and I think young people will relate to the story, especially the bullying angle in schools.I received a free copy of this book for my review.
